Panaji, Nov 21 (IANS) Ajmal Kasab's hanging at Pune's Yerawada Jail was appropriate and was carried out after "every level of judiciary examined it", union minister Manish Tewari said here Wednesday.

"The hanging was appropriate. It was done after every level of judiciary examined it," said Tewari, who is minister of state for information and broadcasting with independent charge.

He added that the execution, which was carried out in secrecy, had nothing to do with the winter session of parliament beginning Thursday.

Tewari was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event organised on the occasion of the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI).

The minister, however, shied away from commenting on the issue related to the hanging of Afzal Guru, convicted for his role in the December 2001 attack on Parliament House.

"This is not the appropriate time for it. When the right time comes, we can comment," Tewari said.
